William Wyler United States, 1936

Wee Hunk's rating of the film Dodsworth

Much of the criticism of Ruth Chatterton is a double standard. Men can look as old as they want, but she was criticized both for wanting to look young, as well as being told she was to old to play the part. Same thing happened to Hedy Lamarr. It's still the same problem today where women are prized for being young and beautiful, and therefore have shorter careers than men.
